Watermedia Resist Workshop with Darla Bostick

A One-Day workshop at Elm Street Studio, 139 S. Elm Street, Keller (214-478-8372)

Saturday, 29 June from 9am-2pm


This art project is good for any level of painter! Cost: $95


one half sheet watercolor paper (140#)—I will have sheets with me for purchase ($4)


photograph of a plant—succulent/flower/flowers (or real flowers)—the plant needs to  have a lot of ‘sections’ to it and enough greenery or other flowers to fill a sheet of paper and when we draw it the lines will go off the paper in several places (example: iris, daffodil, rose, morning glory, even agave, sedum or artichoke sage…something with depth–)

water bucket

2 or 3 brushes that can be used with acrylics (small and medium, round, flat)

liquid acrylics–just cheap craft paints from Hobby Lobby–maybe 5 or 6 colors depending on your plant

tray for mixing colors

strong water sprayer (not a travel size sprayer, but like window cleaner bottle sprayer)

Note: If you want, bring a second paper/photo to work on when waiting for the first one to dry betweenstages. In fact, if you want to save some time, you can bring one paper with an image already drawn on it. If it will work you are ready to paint right away. If it isn’t drawn appropriately, you will have another sheet to draw on for a second one. The drawing needs to be done with medium darkness in pencil and needs to have lines extended to edges of the paper in at least 6 places.
